Biologically born males turned sissies—like you and me—have a nasty history of neglecting the skin on our faces. Growing up, it was considered neither masculine nor necessary to spend time on something that was not really all that important.
Well, things are changing for many men in that regard, especially as they grow older. And for us sissies, a sissy skin care routine is not only necessary but mandatory.
Genetic girls have always been keenly aware of how important it is to pamper their skin. They realize that although makeup can cover up many imperfections, beginning with a clean canvas, will allow makeup application to perform it’s beautification magic even better.
It’s time for sissies to follow suit and get on the skin care routine beauty bandwagon that has been more-or-less ignored by many of us for so long. A girl’s face is her most prized asset and it needs to be pampered accordingly.
Beautiful Skin – From the Inside-Out
Before I delve into how a sissy should take care of her skin on the outside, it’s good to be aware that the skin on your face is, first of all, an organ. Much of it’s overall health and suppleness depends on what’s going on inside of your body.
Smoking, excessive alcohol consumption, a shitty diet and eschewing exercise will work to undermine your skin from the inside-out. Not only the skin on your face, but all over your body. You most likely already know this but it can be good to state the obvious sometimes.
That being said, this article is all about what a sissy such as yourself can do to the outside of your face to have it looking as smooth and supple as possible. Basic sissy skin care can be divided into five distinct areas.
Many sissies don’t understand the importance of washing their face at night before going to bed. During the day your face is bombarded with pollutants, free radicals, dust, bacteria and collagen-destroying UVA rays.
It’s imperative to get all of that crap off of your face—EVERY DAY! Many GG skin care routines have them washing their face in the morning too. But if once is enough for you, then make sure to do it at night.
Use a specialized facial cleanser, not soap. Facial cleansers are gentler on the skin and will not overly dry it out. Plus, they have hydrating ingredients—like Micellar Water—that will help to hydrate the skin. Regular soap will work to dry your face out way too much.
Moisturizing is the next compulsory step in the sissy skin care routine. Aging, the wind, the sun: they all conspire to dry out your face, making it look less-than-youthful. Applying moisturizer twice per day will help to replenish the water content of the skin, combating the damage that the everyday environment can cause.
If you wear makeup, then a lighter moisturizer in the morning is appropriate as it will not compromise your foundation. If you shave, then moisturizing afterwards will help to negate the adverse effects that shaving can have on your face.
In the evening, you can use a thicker moisturizing cream. It’s always better to moisturize while your face is still a bit damp. That will help to lock-in the moisture that is already present on the skin.
When purchasing moisturizing creme, look for ingredients that stimulate the production of collagen. Collagen is a protein that provides structural support to the skin. It creates a matrix-like web of fibers that serve to hold everything together.
As you age, collagen breaks down, causing wrinkles and sagging skin. You want a moisturizing cream that will help to boost collagen production. Look for a product that contains one or more of these collagen promoting ingredients:
- Vitamin C
- Retinol (Vitamin A)
- Hyaluronic Acid
- AHA or alpha-hydroxy-acids
- Aloe Vera
Cleansing and moisturizing are the two vital steps that form the cornerstone of any sissy’s skin care routine. The next three are—if not vital—essential.
The top layer of your skin (epidermis) is made up of four to five sub-layers. As the skin cells of the outer-most layer age and become damaged, they naturally shed away; every three weeks or so. Sometimes you may want to remove that dying superficial layer more often than that. That’s where exfoliating scrubs come into play. Scrubbing will give your face a brand new layer of skin to work with.
In essence, exfoliating scrubs contain micro-scrubbing abrasive beads that work sort of like a household cleanser—but not nearly as caustic. Since, by their very nature, these scrubs are not that gentle, you should exfoliate once or twice per week at most.
Don’t believe that you should use them everyday as the directions might suggest on the back of the bottle. That’s just the marketing department doing its job to get you to use more of their product (wash-rinse-repeat).
Exfoliating on a weekly basis will help to:
- Deep clean your face
- Give a healthy, shiny glow to your skin
- Prevent clogged-up pores
- Smooth rough patches of skin
- Stimulate collagen production (depending on the ingredients)
There are many, many types of scrubs available on the market. You’ll have to do your own diligent research as to each one’s effectiveness. Be sure to always wet your face before scrubbing.
There is a common misconception that a facemask is used to exfoliate. Although there are exfoliating masks you can buy, that’s not what a mask is primarily intended to do. A beauty facemask is typically a cream that you apply to your face and leave on for 5 or 10 minutes before washing it off.
Like an exfoliating scrub, a mask, depending on the specific ingredients, should only be used a couple of times per week. Choosing between the different varieties of face masks can be overwhelming. Below are the four main types:
- Cream masks
- Clay and mud masks
- Charcoal masks
- Paper masks (popular in Asia)
The main purpose of a beauty facemask is to give the skin a temporary—but intense—dose of additives that will help achieve:
- Skin hydration
- Reduce oiliness
- Improve circulation
- A smoothing of fine lines
- Reduce inflammation
The idea is to match the facemask to your skin situation—dry, oily, damaged, aged, etc. Many sissies, and GG alike, underrate how important regular use of a facemask can be to a beautifying skin care routine.
At first glance, eye cream may seem like a not-so-necessary, even extravagant part of the skin care process. But when you take into account under eye puffiness (bags), dark circles, thin lines and wrinkles that can appear around and under the eyes, it’s really not.
An eye cream’s basic job is hydration. They contain moisturizing ingredients specifically formulated for hydrating the thinner, more delicate skin surrounding the eye. There are fewer oil glands under the eye which contributes to dryer skin conditions in that region.
That being said, the truth is that eye creams are not all that effective in eliminating bags and dark circles. However, when it comes to reducing fine lines and wrinkles—due to the loss of collagen—eye creams can yield impressive results. Which means if you’re an older sissy, a good eye cream could, and probably should, be part of your sissy skin care routine.
Eye cream ingredients to look for:
- Hyaluronic acid or glycerin
- Emollients such as ceramides and fatty acids
- Mineral oil
- Retinol (promotes collagen production)
- Peptides (promotes collagen production)
- Caffeine (temporary hack for under eye puffiness)
While eye creams have their limitations when it comes to dark circles and bags, a cold, green tea compress can temporarily reduce under eye puffiness as both the caffeine and cold restrict blood flow to the under-eye area.
If you do decide to use an eye cream as part of your skin care routine, the general consensus is to apply it at night. Make sure to dab on the cream; don’t rub it in.
A Sissy Skin Care Routine That Will Work for You
For effective skin care with results that are noticeable, you will need to establish a daily routine. I prefer once-per-day, in the evening.
Beware of sophisticated marketing agendas. The face cream industry is huge, with ginormous marketing budgets designed to get you to spend more money on a perceived miracle product. You absolutely do not need to buy expensive products for effective skin care.
As a celebrity, there might be a need to splurge in this department. But as an ordinary sissy, be practical. As I’m sure you’ve noticed, sissies have a lot of other things they need to spend money on.
